CPU Pentium II 266 MHz RAM 192 Hard Disk 5400 rpm moderate - fast

VIA 400 MHz RAm 256 MB  HDD 5400 rpm  	moderate - fast

Pentium III 600 MHz  	512 MB  	4500 rpm  - fast

QEMU emulation on AMD Athlon 1.6(1.4 GHz) ram 128 MB QEMU disk image fast

AMD Athlon 1.6 (1.4 GHz) 	512 MB 	7200 rpm 	very fast

Recommended configuration

     * The hardware requirements of LXDE are similiar to Windows 98 
(Maybe a little bit higher). An old Pentium II CPU is enough.
     * After X11 and LXDE are started, the total memory usage is about 
45 MB on i386 machines. (This value may be higher or lower according to 
different system configurations.)
     * Though LXDE itself doesn't require better hardware, other 
applications under X do need it. For example, Firefox and OpenOffice.org 
2 are quite memory-hungry. So it's recommended that you have a RAM of 
more than 128 MB.


     The ultimate fast and robust file manager. It provides tabbed file 
browsing and desktop icons with low system resource usage.
     Feature-rich yet user-friendly desktop panel providing most crucial 
functions you expect from a desktop panel. Configuration is done through 
a graphic user interface.
     Standard-compliant X11 session manager with shutdown/reboot/suspend 
supports via HAL and gdm (LXSession Lite is a stripped-down lightweight 
version without X11 session management support, and it's more stable).
     LXAppearance is a new feature-rich GTK+ theme switcher able to 
change GTK+ themes, icon themes, and fonts used by applications.
     LXLauncher enables the desktop to have topic oriented desktops.
     Lightweight, standard-compliant, and highly-configurable window 
manager (adapted by LXDE. We suggest using this as default window 
manager.). This can be replaced by any other window manager like icewm, 
fluxbox, metacity, ...etc.
     A very simple, fast, and lightweight image viewer featuring 
immediate startup.
     Lightweight and simple text editor adapted by LXDE. (We suggest 
using this as default text editor.).
LXDE Common
     LXDE Common is the default settings configuration file for 
integrating the different components of LXDE. LXDE Common manages the 
system behavior and functions to integrate icons and artwork.
     Desktop-independent VTE-based terminal emulator for LXDE without 
any unnecessary dependency (All instances share the same process to 
reduce memory usage).
     Lightweight, fast, and desktop-independent gtk+-based file archiver 
(adapted by LXDE. We suggest using this as as default archiver).
     Monitor configuring tool. You can plug in another screen into LXDE 
or choose to use a big screen projector. Local screen and extenal screen 
can be used at the same time. LXRandR configures the screen solution 
     Lightweight network connection manager. LXNM is a helper daemon for 
LXDE supporting wireless connections (Linux-only).
     Graphic User Interface for netcat. Netcat provides system functions 
as a computer networking utility for reading from and writing to network 
connections on either TCP or UDP.



     It needs less CPU and performs extremely well with reasonable memory.


     It runs well even on older computers produced in 1999.
Energy saving
     It requires less energy to perform tasks to other systems on the 

Simply Beautiful

     It includes an internationalized and polished user interface 
powered by GTK+ 2.

Easy to use

     It provides a choice to use the simple eeepc like Launcher user 
interface or a MS Windows like application panel.


     It is easy to customize the look and feel of LXDE.

Additional Features

     It offers additional features like tabbed file browsing or menu run 
dialogs known from operating systems like Mac OS. Icons of new 
applications show up after install on desktop.

Desktop independent

     Every component can be used independently from other components of 
LXDE offering the flexibility to use LXDE parts with different Unix like 

Standard compliant

     It follows standards as specified by freedesktop.org.
